The view is what bumps this review up to 4 stars. Internet access, if you could connect at all, was painfully s-l-o-w. I mean hair-growing slow! Couldn't even get on at 10PM, but at 5AM managed to connect, but s-l-o-w.
The wake up call - the first call we got (at 1:54am) went to the living room phone, not the bedroom phone. The second and third calls went to the bedroom phone. WTH?
While the donuts and pastries were fresh, the breakfast area (lobby) was way too small to accommodate the guests who wanted to eat between 8 and 9 am.
Location: A+ and perfect.
Room: definitely get a room with a view - worth the extra bucks. Loved the fireplace and whirlpool tub in the living room. Be aware that when you're on the balcony you can see into the room next door to you. Likewise, the balcony folks in the room to your right can see into your room...
Staff: Not overly friendly, but o.k.
